Christmas tree (turning)

The CNC turner's Christmas tree

As a Christmas tree decoration, key ring pedant or as a small Christmas present – the CNC Christmas tree has many uses, and can be easily made with a CNC turning machine and a little skill.

The workpiece is processed from a rod on a CNC turning machine with counterspindle. The outer contour is created in the contour editor and machined using stock removal cycles. A hole through the top can be used to attach a key ring or a hook for use as a Christmas tree decoration.
